About

History

Named after engineer, military leader and public administrator Sir John Monash, Monash University was established by an Act of Parliament in 1958. When our first students began their studies at our foundation campus in Clayton in 1961, we became the first university established in the state of Victoria in over 100 years.

Education

Monash motto Ancora Imparo ("I am still learning") reminds us that the search for knowledge never ends. Monash is fired with a restless ambition that pushes us to do things better, to set new benchmarks and to break new ground.

Research

It’s a certain drive to question the answers and go beyond convention that makes research at Monash different. We believe that great research, when properly applied, can lead to lasting and positive change in the world. 

Our faculties, schools, departments, institutes and centres are positively changing lives every day. Our researchers are at the heart of everything we do. Find out about their research and their experience working at Monash.

Career

Robotics, artificial intelligence, globalisation and other disruptive trends are reshaping every aspect of our lives including our careers. 

A Monash education prepares you for work as we know it today but also for success into the future. Our range of flexible degree options give you the space to explore your interests and pursue your goals. We support the development of your expertise, skills, experience and resilience in order to provide you with lasting career success.

Services

Student services

As a Monash student you can join a huge range of clubs, make new friends and share experiences that you'll treasure for the rest of your life. We also have many services to help you settle in and get involved. We offer a range of student services to make sure you get the most out of your time at Monash, and we encourage you to take advantage of them.

We offer many services to assist students from a rural or regional background. These include special-entry schemes, scholarships and student support. 

Housing services

Community means safety, friendship, support and wellbeing. A vital part of preparing yourself for a life of learning, innovation and exploration is the opportunity to meet and learn from one another. This is what living on campus, or in "Res" offers.

For students who live on campus, university life continues beyond the classrooms. Every residence has a long list of activities to help you meet people, stay connected, form study groups and enjoy your time. Friends you make in Res may well become lifelong connections and form part of your social and professional networks well beyond graduation. 

Library services

All Monash students have access to online resources to improve study habits. Libraries also host events throughout the year to improve research and learning skills.

Medical services

Medical clinics are located at the Caulfield, Clayton and Peninsula campuses. A team of qualified professional health-care providers staff the University Health Service and are available to provide a wide range of health care including travel advice and vaccinations, mental health, referrals, minor surgery, skin checks and pathology.

Student Life

Campus life

Monash has four Australian campuses on the lands of the Wurundjeri and the Boonwurrung people of the Kulin Nations. Our international campuses are in Malaysia, China, India, Italy and the first foreign university campus in Indonesia. Each provides an environment that identifies and nurtures talent – and turns that talent into ability.

Sports facilities

To make the most of your time at uni, a healthy and physically active lifestyle is essential. It's also a guaranteed way to make new friends while you study.

You don't have to be a sports nut or gym junkie to benefit. Monash campuses have plenty of free-play areas where you can have a kick of the ball, shoot hoops with friends, or just work out on the outdoor equipment in your spare time.

Monash University also provides high-quality services and programs at discounted rates to enrich your on-campus experience. We can teach you to swim, give you expert health and fitness advice, or show you how to perform a squat lift. At the gym, you'll find classes in aerobics, martial arts, yoga, aquatics  and cycling.  

Student clubs

Studying at uni offers a unique opportunity to try out new things and explore what most interests you. The best way to share these experiences is by joining a club and participating in your local student association. 

All Monash campuses have student-run clubs that organise fun activities such as trips and social events. There are clubs for everybody, from anime and chess fanatics to lovers of performing arts and the outdoors, medieval enthusiasts and volunteer groups.
